Re: Flying Bridge Restoration

Great pics to go along with an amazing job. I'll probably never take on such an extensive project, but your detail offers a lot of insight into taking on one or two individual upgrades!

Re: Help! No waste holding system. Starting from scratch.

Re: Help! No waste holding system. Starting from scratch.

Dave, You (probably?) have a thru hull pickup for your original system (there's just not a readily (if any) thru hull valve to close). So that part's done. In fact, you can, and should keep the existing "processing" system (macerator, toilet, pickup). What you're wanting to do is eliminate...

Starboard's pressure (as I remember from last season) had gone from about 60 (?) psi to 45.
Port pressure - rock solid at 60

Re: Paint Stripper

Jim,

Question - given aluminum's propensity for self-creating a oxidation layer that will prevent paint from adhering properly, what would you recommend/advise for post treatment with the stripper?

Re: Dinette parquet, looking for a section

I could use a couple of squares. I did find the missing piece of the square I originally mentioned. It had fallen into the forward bilge and floated towards the bow. It showed up when I took a shop vac and was cleaning the water out of the bilge. Floated right up to the vac's nozzle. The fwd bilge p...
